Pink you say?

Alright, so as you know, Friday Adam and I found out we are having a little girl. As I have shown in previous pictures, my poor baby girl had no pink in her life! I couldn't have it. Saturday after work, mom and I immediately went out shopping. Can we say fun? Oh my gosh. This whole time I have been looking at cute little blue and white overalls and completely neglected to pick up any pink! It was like heaven! (I have to say that of course Adam asked why I was going shopping. I kindly explained that our daughter will not go through the most impressionable years of her life without pink. I said that at this point all she owned was yellow or blue and I needed to froo-froo her up. I must say his response was quite humourous - "Jess, she's not a lamp or couch! She doesn't need any "froo-froo"!" - poor guy; he will never understand.) We began our shopping excursion with modesty in mind knowing that there will be upcoming showers... however, once you see that glorious sprawl of rose, fuchsia, carnation, and magenta, you can't help but want it all. It also didn't help that Belk was having a sale and I had a coupon to take an additional 15% off sale items. I mean, how can a bargain hunter like me walk away from that? We must've circled the store at least 25 times as we picked up each and every outfit and "ooohed and awwwed" over them. I ended up with some great things and the best part was I got to tell Adam they were on sale! Here are a few of my favorite things I eneded up with (It would take about 15 pages to show everything we ended up getting so I had to limit to my favs)

Cute little polka-dot onsie

This one has a short sleeve and long sleeve shirt. Don't you just love the feet on this one? They look like little ballet shoes! Adorable!

This is a long sleeve onsie with pants to go over it. Love the emroidered saying on it (which I don't think you can read) - "My daddy loves me."

Baby girl will be all ready for our beach trip we are planning when Adam gets back! Can't you just see her in this and a cute hot pink beach hat?! (Oh, the pink things are little embroidered flamingos)

I'm not ashamed to say that I bought this just for the lady bug feet.

You know I had to buy this when I saw it...there are two others in the set that say "Adorable" and "My mommy loves me"

I figured I should start the shoe obsession as early as possible.

So after I got home it was time for mine and Adam's usual web cam date. I spent the first 10 minutes of our time showing him all of the adorable things I had purchased. Now, as a man, I didn't expect him to take to much enjoyment out of this. However, I must say again that I have married Mr.Perfect. However much he wanted to scream, he acted totally excited about everything. I was just telling Jessica this morning that I thank God everyday for him. I know I comment on how amazing he is in almost every blog and most of you probably grow sick of it, but I just can't help myself. I feel so blessed.

After the fashion show, we spent some time discussing what to do about his leave situation in December. It stinks that you can't ever know when a baby is coming. I'm sure I have mentioned what a planner I am and this whole situation doesn't sit well with me. I have no control over whether he will be here for the delivery. We've been trying to work things out so that he gets his 10 days emergency leave (used for instances like a wife in labor) and his regular 2 week leave (all soldiers get a two week break to come home while they are deployed) right there together so he can be home for 3 weeks. I'm not sure how things are going to work out though. My due date is December 4th so as time gets closer be sure to say an extra prayer that by the grace of God Adam will somehow be able to make it for the delivery. I don't want him to miss out on such an awesome experience.

Other than the usual pregnancy symptoms I have been feeling good! I get horrible leg cramps some nights and I haven't been sleeping much, but other than that I can't really complain. The lab tech said baby looks healthy and we all know that is the only thing that matters! I scanned some of the ultrasound pics to email to Adam so I figured I'd share some! (Now, I might be a total idiot, but it took me a long long time to figure out what some of these were showing. Yes, she had it labeled, but I am apparently a special kind of idiot and even that didn't help me. Maybe you'll be able to decipher them!)

She gave us a nice shot! haha, it's a girl!

Such a beautiful foot!

Well, I am excited that you are having a girl but can't believe I was wrong! It is so good that you and Adam get to see each other while you talk. Isn't technology great! Have fun shopping and preparing for a sweet little girl.
